We have a co-epidemic of COVID and misinformation | Community Voices

Jorge Cham
The Science News Cycle

This edition of the Community Health Roundtable examines misinformation around COVID.

The COVID-19 pandemic has tested the ability of government and public health officials to effectively communicate complex COVID-19 information to a diverse public audience. At the same time, multiple other common sources of information (and misinformation) have caused confusion and mistrust of official messaging. Expert panelists discuss the roles of public health officials, mainstream and social media, and efforts to counter misinformation throughout the population.
